New Image and Plot Details for Woody Allen’s MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT Starring Emma Stone, Colin Firth, and Marcia Gay Harden

by     Posted 4 days ago

A new image has gone online for Woody Allen‘s upcoming film Magic in the Moonlight.  We previously reported that the movie “is a romantic comedy about an Englishman (Colin Firth) brought in to help unmask a possible swindle.  Personal and professional complications ensue. The film is set in the south of France in the 1920s against a backdrop of wealthy mansions, the Côte d’Azur, jazz joints and fashionable spots for the wealthy of the Jazz Age.”  The latest issue of EW reports that the “possible swindle” involves the Englishman trying “to expose a phony mystic (Emma Stone), only to end up falling for her.”  Furthermore, Marcia Gay Harden will play “Stone’s mother and co-conspirator.”

Allen says he had the idea for “ages” but it only recently clicked when he decided to set it in the south of France in the 1920s rather than the present day.  Allen also said that the reason for him shooting so many of his recent films in Europe is “By sheer accident because I was getting European financing. I’ve wound up being a foreign filmmaker.”  Hit the jump to check out the image.  Magic in the Moonlight opens July 25th.

TOP 5: DRAFT DAY, Early Reactions to THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, Colbert Replacing Letterman, Drew Goddard Directing THE SINISTER SIX, STREET FIGHTER: ASSASSIN’S FIST

by     Posted 8 days ago

collider-top-5-sliceFor the first time that I can remember since I started writing for Collider in 2010, director Peter Weir‘s The Truman Show made headlines this week when we learned that Paramount is developing a TV series adaptation of the film. While I won’t waste any space today discussing my feelings on the adaptation (mostly because there aren’t any real details to dissect as of now), I will absolutely take this opportunity to talk about my adoration of the film. The Truman Show ranks among my all-time favorites with ease and, if pressed to name a lone favorite, it would likely make that cut too. I actually didn’t watch it until my second year of college, circa 2007, but I credit that first viewing as a benchmark cinematic experience for me; one that helped me begin to understand the impact that a movie could have on a person’s outlook and perception of the world around them. I would eventually go on to dedicate my graduate school research to the film, during which I watched it at least 15 more times; wrote this semi-boring perceptual effects analysis; and wrote/recorded this somewhat less boring seven song record. On paper, these projects were a way to fulfill requirements towards my degree. In reality, it was an excuse to delve further into the headspace of a work that, for all intents and purposes, changed my life.

All personal reflections aside, this week’s Top 5 features interviews for and Matt’s review of Draft Day, early reactions to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the announcement that Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman on CBS’ The Late Show, Sony selecting Drew Goddard to direct The Sinister Six, and the first look at Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

Extended TV Spot for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Contains Even More New Footage

by     Posted 16 days ago

In case you haven’t seen enough of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, Sony has released an extended TV spot containing even more new footage.  I’m curious as to why they keep doing this.  Are they worried people won’t come out to see a Spider-Man movie?  It’s Spider-Man.  People will see it.  It will sell lots of toys and other merchandise.  It’s also the first movie of the summer blockbuster season (no disrespect to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but summer blockbuster season begins on the first weekend of May; it’s science).  Does giving so much of the movie away really benefit anyone?  I guess if you can’t get enough of the movie before you see the movie, then you’re over the moon about the company’s marketing campaign.

New Images from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Provide a Good Look at Green Goblin’s Glider [Updated with Hi-Res]

Despite the fact that the movie doesn’t open for over a month, Sony is nowhere near done with it’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 marketing blitz.  Today’s batch of new images offer a behind-the-scenes look at the practical version of Green Goblin’s (Dane DeHaan) glider, another look at Paul Giamatti’s Rhino, and then a couple of other images that might cross the line into possible spoiler territory.  It’s been said to death, but given the amount of footage and such that we’ve seen from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it feels like we have enough to plot out the entire story.  Despite feeling overwhelmed by it, the footage actually looks quite good, so hopefully director Marc Webb still has plenty of surprises waiting for moviegoers on opening weekend.

Novak, and Chris CooperThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd. [Update: We've updated the article with high-resolution versions of some of the images.]

Early Monday morning, Sony gathered select press for a preview of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The first fifteen minutes of the sequel was shown, in addition to two other sequences from the film: an early Times Square fight between Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) & Electro (Jamie Foxx) and a later scene involving Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) and Electro.  For a recap and thoughts on the footage screened, hit the jump.  (Of note: there are, of course, spoilers in the following article).

Final Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Sony Pictures has released a final theatrical trailer for director Marc Webb‘s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The follow-up finds Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp.  This trailer would probably be a bit more exciting if Sony hadn’t previously released an overwhelming amount of trailers, clips, and images (keep in mind that the movie is still six weeks away), but there’s still plenty of action and a heavier emphasis on Harry Osborne/Green Goblin even though Electro is the main villain.  The movie looks good; I just wish the studio hadn’t already shown us so much of it.

New Clips from CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

by     Posted 39 days ago

captain-america-2-amazing-spider-man-2

Clips from two highly anticipated superhero sequels have been released online.  First up, a new clip from Captain America: The Winter Soldier features neither Captain America nor the Winter Soldier, as we instead see a discussion between Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Robert Redford’s character, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.  If you’re itching to see the titular duo, though, check out yesterday’s clip.  Early reactions to the film have been overwhelmingly positive, and I’m eager to see how Redford fits into the overall Marvel universe.  You’ll also want to stick around after the credits to see a scene directed by Joss WhedonCaptain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th.

Additionally, two new clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have been released, just a day after the debut clip came online.  These two new clips feature, alternately, a scene between Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen (Emma Stone), and a scene between Peter and Harry (Dane DeHaan).  They’re both quite character-centric, which is promising.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd.

New Featurette for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Puts the Focus on Peter and Gwen

amazing-spider-man-2-andrew-garfield-emma-stone-slice

Sony has released a new featurette for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The featurette shines the spotlight on the relationship between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), which was easily one of the best parts of the first movie.  If this featurette is any indication, it will also be one of the best aspects of the sequel as the two actors continue to have terrific chemistry, and there’s still a commitment to making Gwen more than a one-dimensional love-interest/damsel-in-distress.

Hit the jump to check out the featurette.  The film also stars Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones, Colm Feore, B.J. Novak, and Paul Giamatti.   The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2nd.

Cameron Crowe’s Untitled Film Starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone Set for Christmas Day 2014 Release

by     Posted 65 days ago

bradley-cooper-emma-stone-cameron-crowe-movie

Writer/director Cameron Crowe’s untitled next film will serve as a nifty Christmas Present this year.  Sony Pictures has slated the untitled picture for release on December 25, 2014, where it will square off against Disney’s musical Into the Woods, the comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and director Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken.  Crowe’s picture is described as a romantic comedy and stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii who teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) to scuttle the launch.  The very solid ensemble cast is filled out by Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, Rachel McAdams, and Danny McBride.

Crowe’s last directorial effort, 2011’s We Bought a Zoo, also opened on Christmas Day, and I’m eager to see what the filmmaker has cooked up this time around.

New Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, and Jamie Foxx [UPDATED]

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  In the upcoming sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds himself surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp.  This new trailer is a mash-up of the trailers we’ve seen over the past few months with a few bits of new action thrown in.  With a little under three months left to go until the film’s release date, I’m a little worried about how much more they can show us since we’ve already gotten a pretty heavy dose of the plot.  Perhaps it’s best to keep the reveals where they are, and let us be surprised when we see the film in May.

New Images from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2; Roberto Orci Talks THE SINISTER SIX, VENOM, and More

the-amazing-spider-man-2-andrew-garfield-slice-1

Sony Pictures has released more images from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and we’re starting to get to the “flipbook stage” where, by the time the film is released in May, there will probably be so many images, clips, and trailers that you’ll be able to put together the movie without seeing it.  We’re only in January, and I would say that one of these images already takes things too far, but this strategy is nothing new for blockbusters.  It’s total secrecy during filming and then spilling almost everything afterwards.  I personally find it irritating, but I suppose it’s nice for the people who are super-excited for Spidey’s next adventure.

Hit the jump to check out the images, and if you want to jump even further ahead in the Spider-Man saga, there are also some new comments from writer Roberto Orci on how they’re handling The Sinister Six, Venom, and more.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, and Sally Field, and opens in 3D on May 2nd.
